27 unusual photos from Google Street View

Since 2007, Google Street View has taken panoramic images of more than eight million kilometers of roads in 45 countries and in almost three thousand cities around the world.

Canadian artist and filmmaker John Rafman likes to study these photos. He saves screenshots of the best photos and publishes them on his blog (although he never indicates where the picture was taken). Rafman named his blog "9-Eyes"(literally — "nine eyes") in honor of the nine cameras that are usually equipped with Google Street View machines for shooting.
